I love this restaurant for its pizzas and atmosphere. Pizzas are quite cheap for Brussels; the rest of the food is less cheap. With small kids we now rather (regularly) order pizzas and take them home.

Vesuvio is the volcano near Naples that destroyed Pompeii. Food is definitely in the Campania style here. Quality is average. Pizzas (ca. 10-12 eur) are OK, get the buffalo mozzarella, very tasty even though nor necessarily use on pizza in Naples. Could put a bit...More

I've been there several times with my friends or just for a nice dinner with my fiancé. I was never disappointed. The food is fresh and delicious! Pizza is very good. Perhaps the best in Brussels. I really recommend this restaurant/pizzeria.

Pizza was good but was completely sweet because they forgot the salt...we tried to add on top but of course it was not the same taste. People were nice and friendly. Not expensive. But for my italian standars pizza was not at the maximal level.

Great family run restaurant. We went to Il Vesuvio couple of times and very often take out pizzas; it is literally around the corner of my street. Pizzas are tasty and the pizzaiolo is extremely fast. We get a delicious pizza in 10 minutes with...More
